At least I'm good at the epic fail [Jan. 3rd, 2010|11:53 am]

Do you suppose our reporting database at work has been down all weekend, or did it fail the minute it heard me pull into the parking lot? So, here I am, all dressed up and no freaking data.

And of course, our first movie-date-night in almost a year, that would be when everyone else in the world goes to the movies and I have to park in the 3 miles away in sub-zero temperature parking garage. You know, the one that has mistakenly locked the top door in all of the stairwells? And of course, I left my cell phone home, so I had to navigate the entire garage ramp system, cross the tundra, only to find out that all movies for the next 2 hours are sold out. But hey, at least the beer at Gordon Biersch was...cold.

But all put to shame by this weekend's most EPIC fail. When do you suppose the kitchen drain will back up AND the pipe will crack in the basement sink, which is where all of the drain backup has been going?

Pretty much right after you flush that old bottle of Willow's Cod Liver Oil down the sink. And flush that down with a lot of water to get that smell gone, gone, gone!

And thus distribute it all over your basement.

If there was a Nobel Prize for this stuff...I would be a shoo-in!

So, don't be suprised if the Halloween theme next year is...um....ocean-related.

All I can say is, I'm glad I'm not in your shoes because I don't have nearly the sense of humor you do nor the ability to write about things so cleverly. If I had these experiences it would just sound like whining drivel if I wrote about it. I laughed my head off at this even while I was thinking, Oh, gods, POOR YOU!!!
